Some Staff members have in their signature links to e.g. New Member? -- Read this. When I click on this link there is saying I do not have the permission to view this site.

Same for when I click on "Need help? -- Ask here" Here it says that it can't locate the page I am looking for. Site Guidelines, Visual User Guide and  FAQ are working perfectly.

Can you see these links below? I obtained it from my signature. And, for the strikethrough link, it will refer to this topic. I will update mine shortly.

Your "Ask here"-Link in your Signature is now working.

For the "Read this"-Link it shows: 

Sorry, there is a problem

I have a question regarding the text manipulation features of the WYSIWYG EB forum editor. As the last line on every EB page says that the forum software software is from Invision Community: I believe that this software is IP.Board (version?) and the editor is an incarnation of CKEditor (version maybe 4)?

I recently composed a book review in the Train Tech forum. As CKEditor does feature MSWord import "filters" (when they are installed) I tried c/p directly from Word2013. Worked >almost< like a charm; even cascaded bullet lists were sort of correctly imported. Text color, text alignment (flush left, centered, flush right, justified) were all OK.

However, when attempting to fix things (e.g., first bullet list entry with different font and size, text alignment not justified, positioning of graphics, size manipulation of graphics etc.) it appears as if this is all very well possible, but there is hardly any help on how to do it other than trying things out. (Using IE10) "CTRL b" changes marked text to bold face, as ist does in Word, same with "CTRL i" for italics and "CTRL u" for underline. Although there is no "justify" button in the text alignment menu, it is correctly imported. I could not find the keyboard shortcut of "justify text" - when clicking CTRL sequences chances are, that the entire text goes belly up. So when I want to justify a paragraph, there is no such option in the menus, but the feature is obviously activated in the forum editor (as learned by import from Word).

Is there aby chance to get an overview of the text editing features used/installed with the CKEditor incarnation used on EB? Same with a list of keyboard shortcuts? It would make life so much easier, when composing more complex texts. For example when c/p'ing from Word, pictures are naturally gone when they are imported from a local source rather than the web (using hyperlinks), some invisible remnants remain though, as one can tell by using the delete key repeatedly. Is there a setting that make CTRL codes or characters visible, such as the end of paragraph symbol? I am happy to use any online resource an looked already around, but I would like to know >where< to look as there are simply too many enabled/disabled options.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Hi, while I am unsure of the specific answer to your question, there is a whole Subforum for LDD HERE that might help you solve the issue, or at least find the expertise to help!

I can't log into my main account (TeriXeri) for a long time now, even though that account has made 59 posts (back in 2016) so it's not new, I just checked, it's not banned either, I reset my password, and deleted cookies and log in, but every single time I get this error for a long time now.

I found that merging the two accounts worked for someone who had a problem. So I shall try that one again.

Is there a way to resize an image posted from an external site? I have tried a few attempts at BBCode such as:

[url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/29025875@N06][img width="200" height="109"]http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/rogueang/Varlyrio/saputa_valencia.jpg[/img][/url]

and also:

[url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/29025875@N06][img=200x109]http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/rogueang/Varlyrio/saputa_valencia.jpg[/img][/url]

but neither seem to work. I am proficient with both BBCode and HTML so I assume I am either doing something stupid (most likely) or the board doesn't accept code.

Any help appreciated.

I have no idea about the technicalities of the forum! I know that we lost the rich text editor when Invision upgraded, and here is what I have figured out on this wysiwyg editor we have now.

Image result for LEGO Minifig head

I simply pasted that in by copying image from a google image search using the menu from a right click.

I double click the image once I pasted it and the Image options box opened up and I was able to chose the size. 

I hope that helps?

In order to post resized pictures from Flickr you need to use an option available within Flickr itself:

Share Photo > BBCode tab > select desired picture resolution from drop down list. This will get you unique URL that you can use to post here. Pasting it directly into text editor may not produce the picture preview, but it will work once post submitted.

Thanks for that @Peppermint_M! I didn't know you could do that, I'll give that a try as that seems the most likely answer.

Thanks for that. I was aware of Flickr's resizing capability, but in this case the picture was hosted on Brickshelf so I couldn't use this option.

Is there an easy way to link LDD files in posts? If so, how do you do it? Where should I upload the file?

Just upload it to Bricksafe, and copy/paste the download link. (not the Bricksafe page)

Hi all

I'm a beginner with this "new" lego technic, I'm finding it difficult and frustrating in building my own moc's. As I want to create/build a 4x4 closely to the Gaz 66. But to be honest I don't know where to begin.

I have well over a dozen kits plus a few extra parts I've brought off the Internet.

Your help would be appreciated :classic:
